What went into RSM South Africa being named the RSM member firm of the year for 2015?
"In 2015, RSM South Africa was formed by a merger of three South African member firms. This has resulted in a substantial multi-disciplinary audit, accounting and consulting firm with professionals having a broad range of expertise and qualifications. RSM South Africa has also played a leading role in the international offerings of RSM International and specifically the growth of RSM in Africa. It was very rewarding to be recognised by our peers as the Member Firm of the Year from the 120 member firms worldwide."
